Okanagan in the clear

A weather alert for the Okanagan has now been lifted but remains in effect for parts of B.C.'s interior.

Environment Canada says residents who live in the Fraser Canyon, Nicola, and Similkameen regions all need to be aware of potential dangers as a low-pressure system over Washington state will result in widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms for the southwest interior. Total rainfall amounts will be variable across the region, with 10 to 20 mm expected today. Any areas affected by thunderstorms could see locally higher amounts in excess of 25 mm.

These higher rainfall amounts, particularly if concentrated over the same area or over unstable slopes, may generate localised flash floods or landslides.

Rain showers will continue Saturday, with additional rainfall amounts. Rain showers will become scattered late on Saturday as the low weakens.

The agency says if that rain concentrates in one area then residents can expect unstable slopes, localized flash flooding or landslides.
